ERROR: Cannot create directory when uploading


(Twitchin Kitten) #1

OK Using RW5 here (because 6 sucks), I’m trying to upload a splash page for my client to have a look at the design and i keep getting stacks errors. I clear out pages and use a plain text page and it’s giving me errors on not being able to create the xml files. It won’t create a directory, nothing.

I uninstalled stacks and reinstalled them
I uninstalled RW and reinstalled that.
I deleted the project and started from scratch with a pre-installed theme.
NO JOY. same errors.

I tested the connection and it does connect.
My normal FTP program is FileZilla and since I’ve been using that all week with no problem, I think it’s RW doing this.

and since they won’t let me put two images at a time in posts:

You may be asking RW to create a true directory in an area of your server’s docroot path to which it does not have access and/or trying to create an object which is not a directory - like sitemap.xml.

This suggests that you should experiment with the site settings in RW.

OMG THANK YOU.

It was my fault all along. typo and wrong path on top of it. A fresh pair of eyes always helps.

You’re very welcome: we’ve all done it!
